3 Star Selection
Charlotte (+9 1/2) over CLEVELAND
Cleveland will have a tough time getting up for this game after being so charged up for their season opener against Boston on Tuesday night. Cleveland lost by just 5 points as a 6 point dog in that game, but the Cavaliers apply to a very negative 10-45-1 ATS early season indicator that worked all 4 times for me last season. The Cavs are just 4-17-1 ATS as a favorite of more than 7 points following a loss the last 3 seasons, so bouncing back from losses is not something LeBron and company have made a habit of. My ratings favor Cleveland by 9 points, so the line is fair, and the Bobcats will be eager to play hard in their season opener. I’ll take Charlotte in a 3-Star Best Bet at +9 points or more and for 2-Stars at +8 1/2 points. 3-Stars at +9 or more, 2-Stars at +8 1/2 points.
